O365Migrator v0.99 released!

An import bugfix and two new features:

  • bugfix: if a homedir fails to upload, the document library’s versioning setting would stay disabled
  • if you’re uploading homedirectories, the script will attempt to set the author/editor of all files to the owner of the homedirectory (thanks for the idea Sean!)
  • new ‘unAuthorize’ button, to remove admin permissions from homedirectories after the migration

This is the second post in a series about moving to Onedrive for Business and/or Sharepoint Online from traditional fileshares and/or homedirectories, in bulk, without user interaction.
